More Toys

Getting ready for a market this Sunday at a charity event so trying to get a bit more sewing in over the last week.

A fleece-y monster,


And some more Rag Dolls.


Hope the dreadful rain we've been getting lately eases off for the day!

Finished Flower-Girl Dolls

I'd had an order recently through Facebook for three Rag-Dolls to be carried by flowergirls at a wedding next summer, 2014 (a very organised bride!)

It was a very fun project to work on and I'm glad to say they made it to Scotland unharmed - I'm always a little apprehensive sending stuff I've spent hours working on off in the post.

The dolls were to be similar but different so I selected one colour for each from the flower-y fabric, which is the fabric for the flower-girls' dresses.

Each skirt is embroidered with the name of the flower-girl and the date of the wedding.




Just wish I'd thought of this idea for my own wedding!

Very happy with how she turned out.

Better Late Than Never

There was only one entrant for my little giveaway - I must not have many knitting readers!

Congrats to Faye, in Australia, a long time follower of my work, and very deserving of a free pattern.

New Pattern!

It only took half the night (stupid annoying, tempremental computer) but my new pattern is finally typed up and available for purchase.

Meet Anna-Beth.

She's 15 inches/38cm tall, knit with dk yarn and 2.75mm and 3.5mm needles.  Her dress and shoes are removable, adding to the play. 
And she has a special little mousie friend that can fit in her pocket!

The pattern is available for sale through Ravelry for 3 euro.

But for anyone willing to wait, I'll email a free copy to one lucky reader.  Just leave a little comment on the blog post (including contact details).  On Sunday night the random number generator will select one lucky winner.

Haven't done a giveaway in a while!
